Oh another book junkie! Unfortunately, thanks to life happenings, my small collection got smaller when all my books got left behind in another state due to emergency. However, I am slowly building back up. Charlotte's web, oh my heavens, is a wonderful one indeed! Another favorite that I must re-acquire is "The Call of the Wild" by Jack London.

Happy T-13!

Great list - pretty broad reading spectrum you covered!

Tink said...

Happy (early?) Birthday! My birthday is this Saturday and I love to get books too! This time I'm saving to get my favourite planner-binder for 2008.
Thanks for visiting my Robbie TT!

You can't go wrong w/Little Housein the Big Woods-- I have way too many children's books and have been trying to cull down to a more managable amount I love Classics Newberry's(SP?) and Caldecott's

Robin said...

Those are some great looking books, at least based on their cover art.

I have to admit I don't know the pigeon, but I'm intrigued.

Rhian said...

#1, #5, #6 look very interesting. I wouldn't mind if someone give me any of these for my B-Day :)
Thanks for visiting me :)

Darla said...

Oooh, there's a new Ologies book out? I love those books.

A recommendation for the Young Lady: Theodosia and the Serpents of Chaos by R. L. LaFevers. A girl who lives in a museum--lots of fun stuff about Egyptian curses, a cat, street urchins...

Sparky Duck said...

a fine bunch of books, though I have not heard of most of them and dont see myself picking up the costume jewelery one. However, you can get the mythology one for me next month ;)

Red Garnier said...

Ooh I love your book list! And HAPPY BIRTHDAY Tilly!! =) A wonderful month to have a b-day. Congrats.

Ann said...

I'm with Rhi, you had me at one. 5,6,and 7 also look very interesting. Have you read any of the books about Tacky the Penguin? Very fun (Tacky walks around in a wrinkled Hawaiian print shirt). Cornelia Funke's children's books are also very fun (She writes for younger and older children). Have a happy birthday! :)

Moondancer said...

#1 ans #11 look very good, but #13 is one of my all time favorates.

Happy TT and have fun on your birthday.

Daisy Dexter Dobbs said...

Ooh, I'll take #1, 5 and 6 please! :-)

A very happy birthday to you, Tilly! I think books make the best presents and they always take up the most space on my Christmas list.

Now if I could only wish for more time to read them all!

Now I've got to go find a copy of 600 Black Spots.

Great list. :)


Lisa Andel said...

Oh, it's my birthday this month too! Do I get books? There's so many I would chose in this list :D

Rebecca said...

Ack! My dial up couldn't handle your page - but at least I was able to hit the comment button before it went "oops!"

Happy TT13 :P
